What are you waiting for? When it comes to going after what you’ve always wanted to do, always wanted to be, or where you always wanted to go, what are you waiting for? Whose permission do you need?
I meet so many people that are living in neutral. For whatever reason, they have not shifted into gear and created the plans that will get them what they claim they’ve always wanted. They are in limbo, and time is draining like blood; their life is seeping away.
Waiting is Relinquishing Your Authority
If I hear someone doing a lot of talking, but they have no written plans and have taken no action, then I know they’re waiting for something. It could be that they’re waiting for circumstances to be conducive enough to act, or maybe they’re awaiting someone in “authority” to tell them, “You now have permission to step out on your dreams.”
Waiting on the right circumstances, or delaying because you need permission from family, a spouse, friends, or institution, is to place your life in the hands of them that don’t understand the depth of your passion. How then can you grant them the level of authority to control what you do or who you’ll be?
The Power of Choice
Granted, it’s great to get advice on how to do something, but you better be careful when it comes to asking whether you should do something. I get this a lot from people who ask me if I “think” they should pursue a goal or relationship. How the hell am I supposed to know?
I can offer counsel, but what you’re trying to do is cast off the most powerful asset you have: the power of choice. You’re relinquishing your throne as sole ruler of your personal kingdom and giving it to someone who only has their own interests in mind. You are trading your royalty for slavery.
The Power of Dominion
No other creature under heaven has the power of dominion, and dominion is sovereignty and control over your own domain. I’m not talking about domination; I’m referring to you mastering and ruling your own life as a king or queen would rule a kingdom.
You must take the throne of your own life and rule your territory. I say, “Take it”, because no one will give it to you. If anything, they’ll try to usurp your throne and rob you of your time, energy, and resources.
Whether it’s fear of failure, insecurity about your own abilities, or a sense of guilt that tells you that you don’t deserve your dreams, you must declare war against what is resisting you from ascending to your throne. Time is running out, and your future awaits the royal edicts that will steer your life into everything you’ve always dreamed it could be.
